i'm going to put the full 1 peter 2:8-18 in king james version :

8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 9 not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 11 let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.

13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 15 but sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 16 having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.

Those words right there saying, it would better to suffer for doing good, than to suffer for doing evil. That is a big indicator of long suffering, suffering from doing good, even though good may be persecuted, there are many people who will turn from doing good when they are attacked or pressured, so they will do evil. Staying long suffering, suffering for doing good, is better than suffering from doing evil things. It's saying even in evil times, evil speakings, evil things being conspired, we have to do long suffering during these end times period. If we just jump, and start doing evil as the world is, then we will go from good, to evil. Evil as doing things of the world, sins, evil speakings, many thinggs. We suffering because we are followers of jesus, and even in suffering, they will be saved those endture to till the end
